I know there was a thread somewhere about the nice things that happen to us that restore our faith in mankind but i couldn’t find it. I thought i would just share this story.
At the moment i have got a terrible cold. Not flu, jut very bunged up, blocked nose and sinuses, coughing etc. I was waiting for the bus home last night,and here in the UK Sunday buses can be infrequent and irregular, so i had already been stood for 45 mins. Whilst i was stood there i started coughing. I meen really coughing, i just could not get it to clear and i couldnt catch my breath, (it was very windy out which didn’t help). The more i coughed the harder it was to breathe until finally my asthma caught on and i was realy starting to struggle.
Still coughing i fumbled around in my handbag for my inhaler, of course it was right at the bottom, so there i am with one hand full of the things i had pulled out of my bg, the other hand wih a walking stick and my inhaler in, trying to get the cap off and use it - starting to realy struggle for breathe now. As im doing this, tears steaming down my fac, the bus comes along, slows down, and because nobody puts their hand out to stop it (i wasn’t realy in a position to) it drives off.
The fact that my bus has just gone without me, flusters me (i still hadn’t managed to use the inhaler yet) and now i realy can’t breathe. A kind woman also at the stop comes over to help and i hand her my bag and stick so that i can use the inhaler properly. I then explained to her that that was my, bus but it was ok, there was another one in half an hour or so etc etc. She was very nice but there is not much she could do to help.
I sat down for a minute and rang my bf, to tell him what had happened. When i got off the phone, the same kind lady came over and said she was from the local church and their evening service was just finishing. She had phoned friend who would be along shortly to give me a lift home.
I was shocked. It was so sweet and kind of them to help me, a perfect stranger, get home safely when i was ill, especially as they had to drive completely out of their way to get me there. What lovely people.
